    I enjoyed season 2 of this, and that's a good thing, 'cause we won't see a season three. At least not on ABC. It has been cancelled.

    There is talk of a Netflix deal, though... so who knows?

    well shoot. I have issues getting ABC and the way my cable works I can’t only watch one thing, so I binged season 1 off dvd and was planning to do the same with season two.

    Maybe Kirkman is going to run against Trump in 2020.

    To be honest, I think the "designated survivor" premise has played out. At this point the show would have ended up being "The West Wing 2.0".

    I kind of understand ABC's position. The show seemed to struggle what kind of story it wanted to tell

    True, the story of how he came into office was played out, but they had a lot of other stories to tell, such as the upcoming election, with Kirkman as a staunch independent who refused to knuckle under to either party and did not play the typical games that the rest of Washington does, as observed by Ethan West during a recent episode.

    Stop the world from spinnin' and let me off. It is truly a rare occasion when I agree with Annoyed. Today is one of those occasions!

    He spoke towards my moderate sensibilities. But what got me watching was the main premise. The rest that you mentioned well...that's not why I started watching the show. After that "high" it's hard to simply settle down into a routine political drama. Don't get me wrong, I like the idea but I already have Madam Secretary for a routine political drama which is also getting close to running through it's premise...unless it wants to change into "Madam President".

    I'd be happy if it got another season, but I can understand why it isn't.

    Yeah, I understand. A show that begins with "what if this happened" does eventually play out the origin. The question is can they keep it interesting once that story plays out. In my opinion, this one has done so, as opposed to "The 100" for example. That show has devolved from it's intriguing beginning into just one group fighting another, season after season.

    Been watching it, and am in Season 2, ep 16 as of today. Heard there's a 3rd season, maybe airing now or very soon. The title drew me even before I know Kiefer was in it. It's taken over both lunch and dinner slots of watching.

    ABC cancelled it after 2 seasons, but Netflix picked it up. Supposedly going to air in 2019
